The New City lecture series

UR-logo no text

To launch The Urgent Remarkable we’re holding a series of lectures at Cambridge University Department of Architecture, under the heading The New City.

The lectures will examine how our cities can be re-made in ways that will both inspire and enable all to live well – safely, healthily, prosperously, with pleasure and freedom – and within tightly bounded environmental limits.

All lectures are open to the public and will start at 4pm in Lecture Theatre One at the Department of Architecture, 1-5 Scroope Terrace, Cambridge, CB2 1PX. No registration is necessary. Full details can be found here (pdf).
